Key Stage 1 Is Your Chance To Set Your Child Up With A Secure Foundation

In Year 1, students begin to have a greater understanding of English and Maths within their weekly 1-hour lessons. We want each child to be able to reach their potential in these lessons and provide positive feedback and rewards for possibly challenging areas.

At this age, we will develop their sentence writing, grammar and number usage.

Class sizes are a maximum of 3 students with each group being led by a tutor. As a result, we will always provide a 1:3 ratio with our younger students in order to get their standard as high as possible. The class learn through a variety of group and independent activities, providing help where necessary.

Lessons will follow the National Curriculum while working one step ahead to ensure that our students can raise their hands to answer questions in school with confidence.

When students successfully complete a task, they are enthusiastic about their work, especially if they have earned a prize. Children enjoy their class and always leave wanting to learn more. A positive and uplifting environment builds a healthy foundation for a child to learn.

Year 1 includes areas such as:


➼ Support handwriting and letter formation including capital letters and full stops.

➼ Spell using segmentation.

➼ Write simple sentences.


➼ Count out loud to 100 and back, starting from a given number.

➼ Use number facts (number bonds to 10) to solve problems.

➼ Read and write numbers to 20 and beyond.
